Scrappy Frogs Think Spring Challenge
There is a new challenge up for April over at Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog. it it Think Spring! Here where I live in Oregon, we had record setting high temperatures this past Easter Weekend, with temperatures in the mid to upper 70's!!! It was awesome. So it was so easy to make a project that just screams Spring!! This is what I came up with.
For my card, I started with a piece of white card stock, cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I then cut a bright blue mat at 4" X 5 1/4" and then a piece of Whitewashed Core' Denations card stock cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I then embossed it with a MBossiblities folder called Twigs and Tweets. I lightly sanded the embossed image so the light blue background showed through
I used a Cheery Lynn Die to cut my gate. I added a piece of green floral Washi Tape to anchor the gate as ground. I then added some Green Meadow flower soft on each side of the gate, to represent a shrub. I also added some little birds die cut with a Memory Box die cut in blue and yellow. The Banner is stamped in Memento Bahama Blue ink on a piece of stripped paper and is from a Dear Lizzie stamp set.
I hope you will join us in the challenge and Think Spring!!!
